    SuSE 10.0 is "out of support" for over a year now, I recommend _strongly_ you upgrade your installation.

    why are you unable to upgrade SUSE? You might pick an rpm for a higher version, but that might not work. The only thing you could do then is download the sources, and compile rsync yourself. That will probably require some dependencies to be resolved, possibly resulting in having to install more packages not built for 10, and result in more trouble. Therefore I'd suggest you'd rather put your efforts in upgrading.
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    You want to use an old distro, then live with using old software.

    If you don't upgrade, you will run into those problems over and over again, because there are no more newer versions which fit to your distribution.

    Newer software often also requires newer libraries (or even newer development files to build it by hand), so your idea does not make sense at all.

    Well, don't be surprised that you won't be so lucky every time and/or you will experience strange behaviour with some of those updated applications, especially if the need newer shared libraries than your system provides.

    openSUSE 10.0 or SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED) version 10, if
    the latter please ask in the Novell forums, see http://tinyurl.com/5lcm75

    as most folks here will give answers appropriate for openSUSE only.

    ah, i see now you have already installed the new...good thing you
    ignored those others urging you to not even try...(pretty easy, right?)

    are you sure?

    if they come in a norarch rpm, then YaST (or zypper) will supply all
    needed libs/dependencies..

    and, if they come as source they won't compile until all dependencies
    are met..

    really, there is nothing holding you to openSUSE, SLED or anything
    else as long as you know what you are doing, no problem.

    ?

    This does not have anything to do with "noarch" and if there are no matching dependencies, you're lost, because you would have to build _all_ dependencies yourself, LFS anyone?

    (Not mentioning funny "symbol lookup errors" if library versions don't match exactly the ones, the third party binary was built against, although rpm did not complain.)

    See above, what is the sense in using a _binary_ distribution, when you have to compile half of your system yourself to satisfy all dependencies?

    Not mentioning, that you have to maintain all of your installed (no matter if they were installed via binary-rpms from your ditributor, from 3r party or compiled from source) packages yourself also from now on, reading security announcements etc. to fix security issues&bugs, because the distributor does not do it any more.
